An exciting mixed use project within a stunning heritage building

FIG are just completed this awesome project. The building is based in Bromley, being the old Bromley Town Hall and is a combination of architecture from both the 1900´s and the 1930´s. As storey tellers we are bringing the history of the building to life with references to its two eras as well as some of the very famous and extraordinary people who lived in Bromley. We worked with a large consultancy team, and working with listed building planning consultants to ensure this project is of the highest quality. The building is complex and involves mixed uses from office to hospitality – with a public bar and an impressive members lounge. We worked on both the interiors and the graphics and wayfinding packages, creating the logos for a number of parts of the building. Needless to say this was a very important project for us, for the owners, and a highly significant project for the local community.

The historical development of Bromley Town Hall, commencing with the construction of the 1907 building and progressing to the 1939 building, represents the political development and growth of Bromley since the early 19th Century and adds architectural quality and character to the townscape.

Unique historical character marked by original details

The 1907 building including the Town Hall and Courthouse was Grade II Listed in 1973 and was designed by Architect R Frank Atkinson in a quintessentially Edwardian style with red brick, Portland stonework and dressings, and steel leaded light windows. The building retains many of the original details and materials and much of the inherent character of a building of this era.

A Foundation stone for the Town

The foundation stone of the building was laid by the Charter Mayor in 1906 who’s speech during the ceremony marked the importance of public administration and how it is reflected in the building’s function. The town hall features impressive council chambers that enabled significant debate between its governing members.

The Mayor’s speech marked the importance and general effect of public administration and how it is undoubtedly reflected by the style and importance of the building forming the centre of such administration. The municipal buildings were intended to be the first buildings of a number that would serve the Borough of Bromley and its future generations.

Origins and aspirations of Bromley

The name ‘Brom–Leag’ signified a field or heath where the plant ‘broom’ grows. The sprigs of broom feature on the Bromley borough’s coat of arms which adorns the main council chamber and entrances to the town hall. The Latin motto ‘DUM CRESCO SPERO’ translates as “while I grow I hope” the name Broom Leag combines the history and the character of the building with aspirations of the Clockwise Co- working brand.


It was the ambition of the client to rectify the grand position of the building and to refurbish the buildings into sustainable modern buildings for the 21st Century occupation and to ensure their longevity for future generations whilst respecting and enhancing the architectural and communal significance of the buildings.

The refurbishment reinvigorated the vacant buildings, restoring a vibrancy and activity to the buildings and their context. Modern servicing and environmental upgrades improved the energy efficiency and made it a desirable place to work and visit. The Bromley Town Hall offers an exciting opportunity to combine history and character with contemporary styling.

The collaborative work is a huge sucess!

The project owned by Castleforge Partners, was led by Anthony Sadeghi from E2 Management Consulting , who oversaw the full consultant team including Cartwright Pickard Architects, Nulty Lighting, Core Five LLP, Elegant Clutter Art Consultants, Bureau Procurement Agents, and of course FIG as the Interior Designers on the whole project.

We are very fortunate to be collaborating with the owners of the dormant Town Hall of Bromley. We are working on the interiors as well as the branding and way finding of the building.
